I'd like to sing the world a song

Global Sing-AlongEverybody Up is a seven-level course from Oxford University Press that motivates children by linking the English classroom to the wider world. One of the series' authors is ELT News columnist Patrick Jackson, a strong advocate of the use of songs in the English language classroom. And a natural extension of that is the Everybody Up Global Sing-along, a project that encourages classrooms around the world to send in YouTube videos of themselves singing songs from Everybody Up.

Patrick says, "Watching the videos come in from around the world has been the highlight of my career so far. It’s especially fun and educational for the kids to see themselves cooperating on the production of their videos and to be able to see other children all over the world singing the same songs as them."

The deadline for entries is 31st August, 2013.

The winners will win an all expenses paid trip to Oxford to attend the English Language Teachers Summer Seminar 2014 at Oxford University, including flights and accommodation.
